Dear Friends,                                                                         Monday, February 6, 2017

 

Forty-seven years ago, the Rotary Club of Houston gathered together to establish the Rotary LOMBARDI AWARD, an annual award to college football lineman, offense or defense, and linebackers, with the goal to raise funds to fight cancer, the disease that claimed the life of Vince Lombardi.

 

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Houston, thank you for your support in fighting this disease and of the presentation of the Rotary Lombardi Award.

 

In preparation for the evening we have prepared a few quick notes:

 

4:30 PM         Player Red Carpet Arrivals

5:15 PM         Doors to Sarofim Hall Open for Broadcast seating

5:55 PM         Doors to Sarofim Hall Close for Broadcast

                                    **Please be seated by 5:45 PM. If you are not in your seat when the doors

                                    close at 5:55 PM, you will have to wait until a commercial break to enter.
